Over eighteen boundless albums as experimental as they are pop, Deerhoof has
continuously quested for radical sounds and daring storytelling. 2020's Future Teenage
Cave Artists explored fairytale visions of post-apocalypse, welding intrinsic melodies with
absurdist digital recording methods. Its sequel Love-Lore, a live covers medley, channeled
futurist mid-century artists-Parliament, Sun Ra and Stockhausen, to name a handful- into
a patchwork love letter to the anti-authoritarian expressions that inspire the band.
Galvanized by the challenge of unifying many styles of music, Deerhoof landed on their
next record's concept: baroque gone DIY.
Actually, You Can is a genre-abundant record that uses technicolor vibrancy and
arpeggiated muscularity to offer a vital shock from capitalism's purgatorial hold. "In the
United States now, to be a moral person means to be a criminal, whether it has to do with
a general strike or forming a union or Black Lives Matter protests," clarifies Saunier of the
album's countercultural embrace of liberation. "If you follow the rules, you're guilty. That's
the spirit we were trying to express: an angelic prison bust, a glamorous prison bust." It's a
condemnation of America's mundanity, replacing violence with the heartfelt power of
mutualism.
